You Bring the Popcorn

As many of you know, my Tony is the Tony from "Nate and Tony at the Movies" but recently Nate decided to bow out of the business.  At first Tony thought he could not continue without Nate and he stopped also...but he missed it so much that he decided to go on his own!  The new website and facebook page are up and running and as always, are fun and witty reads.  He is in his element :)

Isn't he so handsome?!  :)
Thanks friends!

Wedding Cake for Aubree and Mike

I made this cake for Aubree and Mike back at the end of the summer, so this should be another summer update post. (ummm....in December WOW.)
This was one of the most challenging cakes I've make.  All chocolate cake with ganoche in the middle layer and chocolate buttercream in the other two layers...of each 5 tiers.  Yummy!  My first attempt at gum paste flowers, (thank you to the wonderful Chris who showed me how it's done) turned out really well!  People at the party thought they were real---success!  (Side note: these people really know how to throw a party!)


Now Colton is engaged (congratulations!), getting married right after Christmas, and I won't even be in the country to make his cake--sorry Colton I really wish I could!   

Christmas Present for Brooke!

Lauren asked if I could do this for Brooke, and at first I thought she seriously over-estimated my creative ability...but in the end I'm excited by the result!  A little pencil freehand, colored pencils (or pencil crayons if you're from Canada like me), traced in pen, and the trick--sparkly nail polish.  I wish you could see the sparkles better, but you'll just have to trust me I guess :)  The princesses sparkle!
I love you Brooke!  Can't wait to see you in a few weeks!!
